A Super Mario Themed Wedding: Daisy & Luigi Get Married!

I had the extreme honor to be in Joseph & Jeny’s wedding this Sunday. They are both very big in the cosplay community, and I have gotten to know them over the years at anime conventions (mainly Naka Kon).

This is how I’m used to seeing them, dressed in some sort of adorable Luigi/Daisy or Peach/Mario combo:

But I had the honor of seeing them dressed up in different attire this time!

Since I was in the wedding, Kansas City Photography wasn’t the official photographer, but being who I am … I of course still snapped some photos!

The theme was too unique to miss!

Handmade piranha plants adorned the tables. Lights were strung across the ceiling. Reds, greens, yellows, and blues were on the tables.

Each bridesmaid was dressed as current styled Daisy, and Jeny’s sister-in-law was Princess Peach. Jeny’s Maid of Honor was Classic Daisy.

Here’s me (on the left) with a fellow bridesmaid, Anna!

The flower girls were also little Daisy and Peach characters.

Jeny handmade her gown! She told me there were three patterns she loved and couldn’t pick between … so she combined them!

“I was trying to represent all three dresses worn by Daisy: classic dress, current dress, and the dress from the Mario movie,” she said.

And, of course, like many in the cosplay community know … sometimes you need help getting into your outfit.

I am so happy these two are now officially husband and wife! Joe lived out of state, and they had to survive a long distance relationship for years!

The day he stepped off the airplane and called Missouri his home — he proposed!

It was amazing to be involved in such a fun wedding! A huge congrats to Jeny & Joe!

Jeny’s photographer, Melody Joy, has more fun photos! Go check her out, and then you could see some photos of me as Daisy, too! 😉
